We created WorkerStation.org (and the Spanish companion site WorkerStationEspanol.org) to provide an open forum for Station Casinos workers to talk freely about their workplace and learn about the benefits and protections members of the Culinary Workers Union, Local 226 and Bartenders Union, Local 165 enjoy.
The website will have:
- Open Discussions. Here you can discuss with other Station workers any workplace issues you face. Using the comments section, you can speak freely without worrying about your supervisor looking over your shoulder. (You can be anonymous and fill in whatever name and e-mail address you like.) Please be civil and respectful to each other, whatever the topic of discussion.
- Company Updates. As you know, Station Casinos has changed in many ways since going private at the end of 2007 and filing for bankruptcy on July 28, 2009. We will try to help you make sense of the many changes – cutbacks and takeaways – that affect you and perhaps show you how things could be done differently if there were a union contract at your hotel.
- Worker Stories. The Culinary and Bartenders Unions have over 50,000 members here in Las Vegas doing the same kind of jobs you do. You will hear directly from some of us about what it means to work in a union casino, to have real job security through our contract, to have a free health plan, and, above all, to enjoy the kind of respect we all deserve in our workplace.
What do you think? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section below. Send us questions. Bookmark the site, add it to your RSS reader, sign up to receive text message alerts on your cell phone or e-mail updates.
You can of course also get in touch with us directly. And we will never let your company know who you are or what you've told us.
Join the discussion here at Worker Station! Let's work together to raise the standards for you and your family!
